The experience that I shall relate...

The experience that I shall relate here took place about three years ago. To me, it was an opportunity to awaken my understanding of healing through the Christ-idea and to prove the power of divine Love. For this, I felt and have continued to feel a great sense of gratitude.

Following an X-ray examination, obligatory in the public school where I was teaching, I was told that I had a defective lung, that I was generally run down, and that I must go on leave for several months and have complete rest and quiet. As a student of Christian Science, I wanted to put into practice what I had been able to assimilate of its teachings; so I immediately set off the same day, a raw day in March, to see a practitioner. With difficulty, induced by coughing, I told her the situation.

The practitioner was silent and attentive. Then to my utter amazement she casually asked me to read aloud a lecture on Christian Science which she took from a drawer. As I read the coughing decreased.
